Bikepark Wales is the UK’s first full scale mountain bike park in the heart of the South Wales valleys offering 29 mountain bike trails for all abilities from family to pro lines.
The park offers a mini bus service which transports you and your bike up to the top in between rides, providing your legs with a little rest before your next run down.
Using the uplift service, the average rider can expect to get about 10 runs in a day. At 4.6 km it’s also possible to cycle a singletrack trail all the way to the top yourself and this will take between 20 and 40 minutes depending on fitness.
For those choosing to use the uplift service we highly recommend booking a day pass uplift ticket in advance. The trail layout at Bike Park Wales enables riders to mix and match their trails by combining different segments together. A rider, for example, may choose to ride the signature ‘Dai Hard’ black graded trail from the top and then easily switch onto a the ‘Rim Dinger' red graded trail as they head back to the the uplift pick up point. This ability to mix and match makes it absolutely impossible to ever get bored. Book a trip now...you won’t be disappointed!
